What I like about this mask is the convenient packaging, the fact that it's non drying and it really helps inflamed pimples to calm down. If a big or persistent one shows up I'll apply the mask as often as I can as a spot treatment and it helps a lot! About the negative points now, it doesn't seem to do much for the healthier part of my face (no oil control, the pores looks just the same as before, no refreshing sensation) so I can see why someone with relatively normal skin would find it underwhelming. The sulphur odor is quite strong and persistent. The price is a bit high too.In a nutshell I'll keep a bottle of it at hand to treat the spotty areas but prefer using different clay masks for the rest of my face.

Personally, I love this product so much. I get a few bumps here and there, the most around my period week. I spend all month prepping my skin so when the week comes it's not as crazy bad. With combination of the cleansing milk from the line, it really helps reduce the redness on my face and leaves my face baby butt smooth. I've noticed that it's also helped a bit with my hyperpigmentation. I typically do this mask at night 1-2 times a week, or right after I pick at my acne. (I know, I shouldn't!) After doing so it really helps calm the inflamation from me picking at it and reduces the redness almost nearly, and the pimple is nearly gone the next day.I've noticed a difference in my acne when I use this regularly vs irregularly, the mask really helps combat new bumps from surfacing. Though a bit pricey, I'd definitely repurchase. A little goes a long way with the product, one whole pump isn't necessary at all, half a pump is more than plenty to cover the entire face.

Quite expensive product that was overall disappointing. This mask had no effect on my skin (acne prone combination). The only things I liked about it were the natural ingredients, the packaging, and the way it "feels" when applying. But with no results, these perks mean nothing to me. Regret spending so much money on a product with zero results. I did not have any negative results, so it IS gentle.

I have been using this consistently 2x a week as recommended on packaging and have found no results. I like that this did not dry out my skin like most masks but wish it would have given me some results. FYI: I have acne prone combo skin ( with acne and hyperpigmentation). I will not re-purchase. I do however love the clay cleanser from this line. UPDATE june 12/2012: Still using this mask regularly, I do like that it calms down my skin and is very gentle, but it still does nothing to clear up my acne nor does it help with the left-over marks.UPDATE August 2012: Will not re-purchase just not seeing any results from this.

I had a really high expectation of this mask to treat my acne. However, after using the whole bottle, there was no result, not effective at all. It didn't even help to minimize the acne.

I am a huge fan of the whole line. I have sensitive and dry skin but recently turned to Ren to combat adult acne-it's been amazing! The sample from Sephora I received has lasted me over a month of consistent, 1-2 x a week use! You really only need a fingertip full for your whole face. Fabulous.The only caveat, like others mentioned-it REEKS of sulphur. I can smell it on my face even the next day. But it's worth it to prevent acne!

This is the newest addition to Ren's mask line - I haven't given it 5 stars because I really need to test it during a breakout episode, but what it seems to do for my normally pretty oily and blemish prone skin is in fact what it says on the pump - clear and calm it. It seems to take away redness linked to oiliness and normalises the oil production for a few days. The one drawback for people might be the smell - this has a seriously powerful sulphur odour to it, and you really need to leave the mask on for at least 15-30 mins to be effective. Although this has clay in it like their Mineral Detox mask, it is much creamier in consistency and as a result really doesn't harden - which is fine - just rinse it off with warm water like the rest of their range, although I tend to take a muslin cloth and wash it off with a circular motion.

This does have the strongest scent of this line - it contains sulfur.This is a clay mask - so it's drawing.I use this only 1x a week - I sleep with a CPAP and find it helps with the constant contact of the straps and mask on my face but I think it would be too much for me if used more often.All of this line has a vacuum pump type bottle - I have found a full pump to be too much for my face of this and the clay cleanser.My skin is oily but dehydrated and acne prone but sensitive this line has helped me clear and keep clear my skin.This is $45 for 1.7 oz - the most expensive item in this line
